Kómu til kistu,
opin var illúð
er þeir ílitu.
Sneið af höfuð
ok undir fen fjöturs
fætr um lagði
en þær skálar
er und skörum vóru
sveip hann útan silfri,
seldi Níðaði. (eddic or germanic)

He cut off the heads of those young cubs,
and under the mud of the forge he laid their limbs;
and their skulls which were under the hair,
he chased with silver, gave to Nidud.
